On Sunday 14 November a service will be held at Bramley War Memorial, starting at 10.40am, with an Act of Remembrance at 11am.

Councillor Caroline Gruen, Chair of The Friends of Bramley War Memorial, said:

“We are so pleased that we can gather in person this year after such a long period of restrictions. There will be some precautions in place and we will not be able to place crosses in the field of remembrance due to the crowding together that this can cause.

“We recommend social spacing is maintained. We welcome everyone wishing to join us, and very much look forward to seeing you there. Seating will be available for those who need it.

“There will also be a short, informal service on Armistice Day, Thursday 11th November. All are welcome, and there will be opportunities for laying wreaths of remembrance informally.”

Moorfields will be closed to traffic from 9.30am-12 noon.
